UAE to deliver 100,000 food baskets to residents hardest hit by Covid-19 crisis


Some 100,000 food baskets are set to be delivered to families and residents in Abu Dhabi hardest hit by the economic impact of Covid-19.

According to the capital’s Authority of Social Contribution or Ma’an, residents who have lost their income due to the pandemic will be in line for the vital aid.

The intiative is funded by members of the public through Ma’an’s Together We Are Good campaign.

Application for help will be accepted from Sunday, April 19. Meanwhile, basket deliveries will begin on May 1.

The goods that will be distributed to the public have been sourced from retailers Lulu Group, Abu Dhabi Co-op, and Al-Ain Co-op.

The basket contains staples such as rice, pasta, dates, beans, tea, jam, and noodles. Families with young children will be given baby supplies.

“Our community has pulled together in an unprecendented way this last month to respond to the current health and economic challenges that are impacting not only Abu Dhabi, but the rest of the world,” Salama Al Ameeri, director general of Ma’an told The National.

To avail the basket, one should be residing in Abu Dhabi, have lost some or all of their income temporarily, on ‘no work no pay’ policy, and have not previously received support from another government agency.

To contact Ma’an, please call 800-3088 or visit their website at
